Clinical trials

The European Union Clinical Trials Register allows you to search for protocol and results information on:
  • interventional clinical trials that are conducted in the European Union (EU) and the European Economic Area (EEA);
  • clinical trials conducted outside the EU / EEA that are linked to European paediatric-medicine development.
  • Learn   more about the EU Clinical Trials Register   including the source of the information and the legal basis.

    The EU Clinical Trials Register currently displays   42568   clinical trials with a EudraCT protocol, of which   7009   are clinical trials conducted with subjects less than 18 years old.
    The register also displays information on   18700   older paediatric trials (in scope of Article 45 of the Paediatric Regulation (EC) No 1901/2006).

    Phase 1 trials conducted solely in adults and that are not part of an agreed PIP are not public in the EU CTR (refer to European Guidance 2008/C 168/02   Art. 3 par. 2 and   Commission Guideline 2012/C 302/03,   Art. 5) .

    Clinical Trials marked as "Trial now transitioned" were transitioned to the Clinical Trial Regulation 536/2014 and can be further followed in the Clinical Trial Information System  
    Examples: Cancer AND drug name. Pneumonia AND sponsor name.

    E.1 Medical condition or disease under investigation
    E.1.1Medical condition(s) being investigated
    Patients with advanced PD who's motor symptoms — severe response
    fluctuations, dyskinesias, painful dystonia and / or bradykinesia —
    cannot be controlled despite optimal oral pharmacological therapy.
    Patiënten met een vergevorderd stadium van de ziekte van Parkinson
    wiens motorische symptomen - ernstige respons fluctuaties,
    dyskinesiën, pijnlijke dystoniën en / of bradykinesie - niet goed onder
    controle zijn met orale farmacologische therapie.
    E.1.1.1Medical condition in easily understood language
    Advaced Parkinson's disease
    Een gevorderd stadium van de ziekte van Parkinson
    E.1.1.2Therapeutic area Diseases [C] - Nervous System Diseases [C10]
    MedDRA Classification
    E.1.3Condition being studied is a rare disease No
    E.2 Objective of the trial
    E.2.1Main objective of the trial
    The objective of the study is to realize an efficient allocation of resources to the available treatment options in advanced
    PD, while guaranteeing the highest standard of care.
    Neurologen en patiënten kiezen vaker voor Continue Levodopa Infusie (CLI) dan voor diepe hersentimulatie
    (Engels: Deep Brain Stimulation; DBS) voor de behandeling van het vergevorderde stadium van de ziekte van
    Parkinson, ondanks het feit dat beide behandelingen waarschijnlijk even effectief zijn en behandeling met CLI
    kostbaarder is dan de standaardbehandeling van DBS. Deze situatie zal blijven bestaan bij het uitblijven van
    direct vergelijkende data. Een vergelijkende studie voorziet in een wetenschappelijke basis voor
    behandelbeslissingen bij gevorderde Parkinson. In deze studie zullen de behandelingen worden vergeleken,
    waarbij het primaire eindpunt de kosteneffectiviteit betreft.
    E.2.2Secondary objectives of the trial
    Secondary objectives are
    1) to quantify the need for and cost of healthcare and the health benefits in both groups
    2) to assess the patients motor and non-motor symptoms, quality of life and daily functioning in both DBS and CLI
    3) to register and compare adverse effects and complications in both groups and verify patients’ and treating physicians’
    conceptions about the different treatments
    Verder wordt er gekeken naar de vraag naar en kosten van
    zorg in beide groepen. Daarnaast worden secundair de motorische - en niet-motorische symptomen, de kwaliteit van
    leven en dagelijks functioneren van patiënten met DBS en CLI vergeleken. Verder wordt er gekeken naar de bijwerkingen
    en complicaties van beide behandelingen en de oordelen van zowel behandelaars als patiënten gevalideerd.
